Exfoliation Revisited. March 3, 2008

I just wanted to talk about exfoliation again because I’ve learned some new things about it since I talked about it last year.

The main thing that I want to mention is that you shouldn’t be exfoliating very often or with anything harsh if you have sensitive skin because it is really, really irritating for the skin and can bring on more problems than it’s worth.

A rash is not the only thing that indicates sensitive skin. In addition to more allergic reactionish things, broken veins, redness, and even acne are signs that your skin is delicate. You can have just one symptom or all of them – and anywhere in between. So, if you have any of those symptoms or any combination of them, you really need to rethink skin care.

I personally have sensitive skin and I have dropped exfoliating down to only once a week.  I still feel like I need a little help since I do have dry skin, but I don’t want to be too rough. I definitely wouldn’t want to use a brush or anything super harsh to my poor skin (that’s not really all the recommended anyway).

So, take a closer look at your skin and decide whether you think you need to continue exfoliating.

 

Ow. And Everyday Minerals

Well, I’m laying in bed right now hoping the Advil I took helps my aching back. I was bending over blow drying my hair and then I stood up and it felt all tight by my right shoulder blade. Grr. I need to work on flexibility – this wouldn’t be happening to me if I did stretches.

So anyway, Everyday Minerals. I wanted to touch on that briefly before I (probably) do a haul video. Or a review video. I don’t know exactly, lol. Anyway, I’ve really been amazed by the quality of their products at the prices. I’m so excited about everything they have, especially the eyeshadow which is the first mineral (or even loose shadow, other than MAC) that I’ve found that can actually be used dry. I can’t wait to get every shadow they have. 😉 By the way, ED Minerals has a special on until March 10th, to get 8% off your order of $35+. You’ll also get a sample size of the pre-release blush/shadow Mojave Camping and Glass Bottom Boat shadow, both of which will become available March 15th. I have both of them and I REALLY love Glass Bottom Boat. Not sure about the Mojave Camping yet, but we’ll see. 🙂 I’m sooo excited about Glass Bottom Boat for spring though, it’s this beautiful light blue with a teal-ish flash to it.
